LEXINGTON, Va., Sept. 19. 2013 – The western-most foot bridge on the Chessie Nature Trail is closed as of today and will remain closed until further notice.

The bridge closure blocks access to the trail from Jordan’s Point. Access from the popular Mill Creek entrance, located near the intersection of Old Buena Vista Road and Lincoln Road, will remain open.

Those entering the trail from the Lexington end are advised to enter at the Mill Creek entrance, not Jordan’s Point, since space does not allow a permanent detour and detouring via Old Buena Vista Road is not advised.

Those entering from the Buena Vista end and exiting at the Lexington end are advised to exit at the Mill Creek entrance.

The closure will last until a structural analysis is completed and the bridge is repaired or replaced.
